This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on Hbrary shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you.

[The Right of TrantHation and IterrodneUon in Re'erted.'i

1887 1 

RirHARD Clay and Soxi;, 


" SSt^o biU gibblt mt i^t |!ob anb l^e m^z ? " 

So questions one of England's sweetest singers. The ^^ Howf* 
has already been told, after a fashion^ in the verses prefixed to 
*' Alice in Wonderland ^\' and some other memories of that happy 
summer day are set downy for those who care to see them^ in 

this little book the germ that was to grow into the published 

volume. But the " Why f " cannot ^ and need not, be put into 
words. Those for whom a child s mind is a sealed took, and 
who see no divinity in a childs smile, would read such words 
in vcan : while for any one that has ever loved one true child, 
no words are needed. For he will have known the awe that 
falls on one in the presence of a spirit fresh from GOD'S hands, 
on whom no shadow of sin, and but the outcrtfiost fringe of the 
shado^iu of sorrotu, has yet fallen : he will have felt the bitter 
contrast between the haunting selfishness that spoils his best deeds 

and the life that is but an overflowing love for I think a 

child's first attitude to the world is a simple love for all living 
things : and he will have learned that the best work a man can 
do is when he works for lov^s sake only, with no thought of 
name, or ^^ain, or earthly reward. No deed of ours, I suppose, 
on this side the grave, is really unselfish: yet if one can put 
forth all on^s powers in a task where nothing of reward is 

vi ** 8mf)0 iDi'II rititilc tnc tijc ^olu anl) tf|c 0®})$ ? *' 

Ji oped for but a little child's whispered t hanks ^ and the airy touch 
of a little child's pure lipSy one seems to come somewhere near 
to this. 

There was no idea of publication in my mind when I wrote this 
little book : that was wholly an afterthought, pressed oti me by the 
^^ perhaps too partial friends ^^ who always have to bear the blame 
when a writer rushes into print: and I can truly say that no praise 
of theirs has ever given me one hundredth part of the pleasin'c it 
has been to think of the sick children in hospitals {where it has 
been a delight to me to send copies) forgetting, for a few bright 

hou7's, t/teir pain and weariness perhaps thinking lo7'ingly of 

the unknown writer of the tale perhaps even puttiiig up a 

childish prayer {and oh, how much it needs I) for one who can but 
dimly hope to stand, some day, not quite out of sight of those pure 
young faceSy before the great white throne. "/ am very suj'c,'^ 
writes a lady-visitor at a Home for Sick Children^ ^^ that there 
will be many loving earnest prayers for you on Easter mornini^ 
from the children.^^ 

I would like to quote further from her letters, as embodying a 
suggestion that may perhaps thus come to the notice of so j fie one 
able and willing to ca7'ry it ottt. 

^^ I want you to send me one of your Easter Greetings for a very 
dear child who is dying at our Home. She is just fading away^ 
and ^ Alice'' has brightened some of the weary hours in her illness, 

and I know that letter would be such a delight to her especially 

if you would put ''Minnie'' at the top, and she could know you had 
sent it for her. She k7iows you, ajui would so value it. . . She 
suffers so much that I long for what I kno^cV would so please her T 
. . . . " Thank you vcjy much for sending me the letter^ and for 

" OTbo toill time m tifc T^oia anH tfjc CKf^g?" vii 

Turiting Minnies name / am quite sure that all these 

children will say a loving prayer for the ^Alice-man'* on Easter 
Day : and I am sure the letter will help the little ones to the real 
Easter joy. How I do wish that you^ who have won the hearts 
and confidence of so many children^ would do for them what vt so 
very near my hearty and yet what no one will do, viz, write a book 
for children about GOD and themselves^ which is not goody, and 
which begins at the right end, about religion, to make tlum see 
what it really is. I get quite miserable very often over the children 
I come across : hardly any of them have an idea of really knowing 
that G(3D loves them, or of loving and confiding in Him, They 
will love and trust me, and be sure that I want them to be happy, 
and will not let them suffer 7uore than is necessary : but as for 
going to Him in the same way, they would never think of it. They 
are dreadfully afraid of Him, if they think of Him at all, which 
they generally only do when they have been naughty, and they look 
on all contiecied with Him as very grave and dull: and, when they 
are full of fun and thoroughly happy, I am sure they unconsciously 
hope He is not looking, I am sure I doiit wonder they think of 
Him in this way, for people never talk of Him in connection with 
what makes their little lives the brightest. If they arc naughty, 
people put on solemn faces, and say He is very angry or shocked, cr 
something which frightens them : and, for the rest. He is talked 
about only in a way that makes them think of church and having to 
be quiet. As for being taught that all foy and all Gladness and 
Brightness is His foy — that He is wearying for them to be happy, 
and is not hard and stern, but always doing things to make their 
days brighter, and caring for them so tenderly, and wanting them 
to run to Him with all their little joys and sorrows, they are not 

viii " mL^a feill riWlc mc tije S0IO anH l|jt OTfig ? *' 

taught that, I do so long to make them trust Him as they trust 
uSy to feel that He will * take their part ' as they do with us in their 
little woes, and to go to Him in their plays and enjoyments and not 
only when they say their prayers. I was quite grateful to one little 
dot^ a short time ago, who said to his mother ^whcn I am in bed^ I 
put out my hand to see if I can feel Jesus and my angel, I 
thought perhaps in the dark they'd touch me, but they never have 
yet^ I do so want them to want to go to Him^ and to feel how, 
if He is there, it must be happy '^ 

Let me add— for I feel I have drifted into far too serious a vein 
for a preface to a fairy-tale — the deliciously naive remark of a 
very dear childfriend^ wJwm I asked, after an acquaintance of two 
or three days, if she had read ^ Alice* and the ^ Looking-Glass.^ 
^^Oh yes^ she replied readily, *'/V<? read both of them! And I 
think *^ {this more slowly and thoughtfully) ''^ I think * Through the 
Looking'Glass* is more stupid than ^Alice's Adventures J' Don't 
you think so ? " But this was a question I felt it would be hardly 
discreet for me to enter upon, 


Dec. 1886. 


The profits J if any^ of this book will be given to Children's 
Hospitals and Convalescent Homes for Sick Children : and the 
accounts^ down to fune 30 in each year^ will be published in 
the St. fames' s Gazette^ on the second Tuesday of the following 

P.P.S. — The thought, so prettily expressed by the little boy^ is 
also to be found in Longfellow s ^^ Hia^vatha^^ where he appeals 
to those who bclieife 

" That the feeble hands and helpless^ 
Groping blindly in the darkness, 
Touch God's right hand in that darkness, 
And arc lifted up and strengthened"

Dear Child, 

Please to fancy ^ if you can^ that you are reading a real letter^ 
from a real friend whom you have seen, and whose voice you can 
seem to yourself to hear wishing you, as 1 do now with all my 
heart, a happy Easter. 

Do you know that delicious dreamy feeling wficn one first wakes 
on a summer morning, with the twitter of birds in the air, and the 

fresh breeze coming in at tlie open window when, lying lazily 

with eyes half shut, one sees as in a dream green boughs waving, 
or waters rippling in a golden light T It is a pleasure very near to 
sadness y bringing tears to one^s eyes like a beautiful picture or poem. 
And is not that a Mother's gentle hand that undraws your curtains, 
and a Mother's sweet voice thai summons you to rise f To rise 
and forget, in the bright sunlight^ the ugly dreams that frightened 
you so when all was dark to rise and enjoy another happy day. 

94 gin f asicr Cmtiitg. 

first kneeling to thank that unseen Friend^ iifht* sends yott the 
beautiful sun f 

Arc these strange words from a writer of such tales as *' Alice " ? 
And is this a strange letter to find in a book of nonsense ? It may 
be so. Some perhaps may blame me for thus mixing together things 
grave and gay ; others may smile and think it odd that any one 
should speak of solemn things at all, except in church and on a 

Sunday : but I think nay, I am sure that some children 

will read this gently and lo^fingly, and in the spirit in which I 
haifc written it. 

For J do not belie^'c God means us thus to divide life into two 

halves to wear a grave face on Sunday, and to think it out-of- 

place to eifcn so mttch as mention Him on a weekday. Do you 
think He cares to see only kneeling figures, and to hear only tones of 

prayer and that He does not also loife to see the lambs leaping in 

the sunlight, and to hear the merry voices of the children, as they 
roll among the hay f Surely their innocent laughter is as sweet i7i 
His ears as the grandest anthem that ei.>er rolled up from the " dim 
religious light " of some solemn cathedral f 

And if I have written anything to add to those stores of innocent 
and healthy amusement that arc laid up in books for the children I 
lo7fc so well^ it is surely something I may hope to look back upon 
without shajne and sorrow (as how much of life must then be 
recalled !) when my turn comes to walk through tlu: valley of 

This Easter sun will rise on you, dear child, feeling your ^^ life 
in every limb," and eager to rush out into the fresh f naming air 

^n €asltr ©rrrling. 95 

and many an Easter-day will come and go ^ before it finds you 

feeble and gray-headed^ creeping wearily out to bask once more in 

the sunlight but it is good^ e7ien now^ to think sometimes of that 

great morning when the " Sun of Righteousness shall arise with 
healing in his wings,^ 

Surely your gladness need not be the less for the thought that you 

will one day see a brighter dawn than this when lo7felier sights 

will meet your eyes than any waving trees or rippling waters 

when angel-hands shall undraw your curtains^ and sweeter tones 
than e^'cr loving Mother breathed shall wake you to a nnv and 

glorious day and wJten all the sadness, and the sin, that 

darkened life on this little earth, shall be forgotten like the dreams 
of a night that is past !
